Hi. Unfortunately my dad passed away in 1986 but before he did so he owned a GT6 which I'd love to be able to hunt down. I'm aware it's quite possibly long gone now, but worth a try eh? My mum really couldn't care less about cars so she doesn't have any information at all about it which is really annoying! Only started thinking about this today, and I came across a register earlier (which seems to be mainly American) but all the cars are referred to by their chassis number rather than their numberplate, which really doesn't help me...

Thought I'd start asking on here as I'm already a member but is there any other resources worth trying, such as Club Triumph? One final thing... can you tell me what mark his car was (hopefully 'is' lol)

Thanks in advance for any help smile

According to an RAC Check it appears to be still on the road, are you serious about buying it or just knowing what has happened to it? I would drop a mail to the TSSC (triumph owners club) and see what comes back.
It is a Mk III, I also had an L reg so could be the better doughnut model on the suspension since they went to a fixed drive shaft later on.

That's (potentially) great news. Can I ask how you got the RAC information? It's only that when I did a registration check on askMID it says the car isn't currently insured... so I was assuming that if it was still alive, it would be in a shed somewhere!

Ultimately I'd love the opportunity to buy it back one day, but unfortunately I just don't have anywhere to store it at the moment.

If all you want is to know it still exists then I think the clubs are your best bet. The RAC was the simple number plate check, I presume this links with the V5 list of cars still on the road and not scrapped though I have never given it that much thought.

Thanks, I will definitely get on to the other forums.

My boss told me to check the Direct Gov site for TAX and it tells me that the 'date of liability' was in 1993...

I'm guessing it may have got scrapped then or just that it has been SORN since then!

Well hopefully he'll check back one day and see this thread. It made my day/week/month/year when I found the GT6 that I'd previously owned, and I'd been looking for for years, on here.

RLC136L was my daily driver from approx 1975 to 1977. Kevin from Sevenoaks. I sold it to a person I believe lived at Ulcombe near Leeds castle Kent.
